What Tasks Are Typical During Water Damage Mitigation at My San Antonio Home?
SERVPRO Educates Homeowners About the Issues Sparked by Water Intrusions Before Restoration Starts
If it is the first time you are handling a severe water damage situation at your San Antonio home, you might underestimate or overestimate the processes you have to complete to restore the preloss state. A professional restorer can help break down the process for a clearer understanding.
Knowing what water damage mitigation at your San Antonio home might require helps you plan your time or make other arrangements, such as addressing the cost implications of the process. After SERVPRO arrives at your property and performs the initial assessment, our crew chief provides a breakdown of the necessary actions, which can range from cleaning to rebuilding damaged structural materials.
Some typical cleaning processes after water intrusion include:
- Drapery cleaning
- Upholstery cleaning
- Cleaning hard surfaces
- Application of topical treatments
The necessary actions may depend on the source of the water or the lead time since the intrusion. Therefore they can vary greatly. Our SERVPRO technicians also help clarify why some of the supplementary processes may be necessary. For instance, we might decide to apply a stain-resistant topical treatment to items such as upholstery or carpets. Before doing so, we ensure you understand the importance of this step for the overall restoration of preloss conditions.
Removing and renovating various materials is also necessary. For instance, pads, insulation, and electrical systems may require replacement after exposure to high volumes of water. The removal processes affect the floors, walls, and other vast sections of the properties necessitating considerable rebuilding or refinishing tasks.
Some of the expected refinishing tasks include:
- Carpet seaming
- Repainting walls
- Reinstallation of electrical outlets
